In November 2016 we launched our sponsorship donation scheme, seeking 150 people willing to donate £5 a month for 20 months or £100 up front. Due to the incredible generosity of local people and some from further afield such as Israel and Singapore, we reached our target in February 2017. This, along with all the other requirements, has meant we were able to complete our application for Full Community Sponsorship of our first refugee family. Approval was granted on 8th March. We are now seeking another 150 sponsors so that we can apply for a second family.
The sponsorship money enables us to top up the local authority housing rates in order to pay for a rental property. We also furnish the property with everything needed to start a new life. Our guests will arrive with nothing. We pay for interpreters, teachers of English as a foreign language, befrienders, school uniform and will help with any re-training so that the family can integrate and find employment as soon as is feasible.
